Kyle Larson takes poles for NASCAR All-Star race

Dale Jr's Last NASCAR All-Star Race

Dale Jr's Last NASCAR All-Star Race

"You just never get to Victory Lane".

Busch is seventh in the standings. After four races, he now ranks second with 303 laps led and first with 156 fastest laps run.

"I think it's just a matter of time of him figuring it out", Stevens said.

Busch powered his No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota to the inside of Brad Keselowski's No. 2 Team Penske Ford-the race leader on old tires-as the field roared toward Turn 1 on the final restart.

The $1 million prize was going to one of 10 drivers who won a 10-lap sprint to the finish. "It wasn't the fastest vehicle that won tonight, but it was certainly the best crew, pit crew, Adam Stevens - crew chief, everybody that works on this auto to give me a good piece each and every week".

Clean air again proved to be king, as it so often is on mile-and-a-half tracks like Charlotte where speed takes a backseat to aerodynamics.

"It would mean a ton", said Busch, who will race in the Coca-Cola 600 on May 28.

Busch jumped ahead on the restart to kick-off the night's final stage and was able to drive away to score the $1 million payday. There is reason to celebrate big. The Promise from the new tires was a.3 to.5 quicker lap time but what we saw was a tire that couldn't hold up in traffic.

Larson dominated the first two 20-lap stages of the race. Kevin Harvick qualified third at 143.504 miles per hour, followed by Jimmie Johnson at 138.827 miles per hour (after a five-second penalty for pit crew over the wall too soon).

"We came down pit road in the lead", he said.

"The race should either be moved to daytime or moved to a different track", said passionate NASCAR fan Elijah Burke after Saturday night's event.

"We had the best auto out there, for sure", Larson said. "We had the best vehicle out there for sure". Wouldn't say here has been a struggle, but it's just been hard to finish it off. Third segment victor Jimmie Johnson led 19 of those 20 laps, with Ryan Blaney leading the other lap.

"Restarting in fifth, I knew I was in trouble", Larson said. I could see a million dollars out the windshield and I just drove this Lowe's Chevy way too hard in the corner a couple of times and gave up some ground.

NASCAR, track president Marcus Smith and Goodyear officials hoped the introduction of a "bonus tire" would liven the race.

Bourdais won the season-opening race at St. Petersburg, Florida, and had the fastest time in Friday's practice.

Ryan Blaney and Daniel Suarez, who both raced their way into the event in an earlier qualifier Saturday, along with Chase Elliott, victor of the fan vote, all opened the race with the softer tires.

Things were worse for Matt Kenseth entering the second stage when his evening ended because of an oil leak.

For 40 laps over two segments, no one had anything at all for Larson.

Despite cutting a tire and crashing early at Las Vegas, Harvick still leads all drivers with 379 laps led at the 1.5-mile tracks this year, and he also ranks fourth with 98 fastest laps run. He finished eighth in the third stage and advanced to the final round.

Each team invited into the All-Star race will start the event with seven sets of prime tires and two sets of the softer optional tires.

The move didn't work and Bowyer plunged into the field, and he failed to advance into the final round. But if a driver opts to uses them in the race's final segment, then they start at the rear of the field. The tires had to be brand new when put on the auto, and NASCAR ruled that even used only under caution, the tires were no longer allowed. The two exchanged several licks as they approached the start-finish line. The most intriguing variable was the introduction of softer option tires.

Kyle Busch won the NC Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway for his second straight NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory.
